Meet our D.A.R.E. Officers!
Officer Johanna Green
Officer J. Green began her career in law enforcement as a police officer in Southern California. She joined the Santa Clara Police Department in 2007. She is delighted to have the opportunity to teach D.A.R.E because she is herself a former D.A.R.E graduate. Thus, she believes wholeheartedly in the positive impact the DARE program has on children and juveniles.
Officer J. Green spends her free time pursuing an advanced degree. She enjoys running, reading, writing, and traveling. Her advice to the youth of our community is:
“No matter what hardships or obstacles you encounter, do not forget your dreams and goals. Pursue them with a passion and know that you can accomplish anything if you give it your all and never give up. Make it YOUR life and live it DRUG-FREE.”
Officer Bob Henderson
Bob began his law enforcement career at the Stanford Department of Public Safety in 1992 and transferred to the Santa Clara Police Department in 2001. During the course of his career, he served primarily as a patrol officer where he investigated hundreds of crimes. He has taken a personal interest over the years in the enforcement laws regarding illegal drugs.
Bob received commendations from his supervisors and outside organizations such as the Optimist Club of Santa Clara and Mothers Against Drunk Driving. He is currently assigned to the Community Services Unit and is excited about his new position as a DARE officer where he is able to share his work experiences in an educational setting.
Bob’s advice for our youth…
“Only a bad outcome can result from drug abuse and violence, as it robs one of their dignity, and talents and is harmful to society. The betterment of the world can only be accomplished through properly educating ourselves and the conscious and sustained act of good deeds.”
Officer Stephen Selberg
Officer Selberg began his career in law enforcement as a police officer in Los Angeles, CA. He joined the Santa Clara Police Department in 2007. He has worked a variety of assignments including patrol, Crime Impact Team, bicycle patrol, and as a Crime Scene Evidence Investigator. Officer Selberg is excited to have the opportunity to be a DARE/School Resource Officer because he enjoys working with the youth of the community and feels he can be a positive role model in their lives.
Officer Selberg is a huge baseball fan and enjoys spending his spare time watching the San Francisco Giants. He also enjoys water sports, dirt bike riding, playing softball, and camping.
His advice to the youth of the community:
"By working hard and doing the right thing, the possibilities in life are endless! By living a DRUG-FREE life, your dreams can become reality."
